DHCP client configuration - debian


I managed to configure my eth card to work on dhcp (or at least I think so) but I can't access the Internet.

dpkg-reconfigure dhcp-client - is that correct?

The way would do it : through a proxy server located at *.*.*.1

how can I do this ?

a tool , a file to edit...

and how could I find out my IP?

running ifconfig returns a text at the IP filed, don't remember what

As far as I know you don't need to run a DHCP client to connect to the internet. If you're on dialup, your PPP software will handle it for you.

I am connecting through a proxy on ethernet

My isp has a dhcp server installed so that he can keep things under control

Currently I am on my machine from Win2k

Proxy settings need setup only in Internet browser (and port too).
DHCP server not send proxy settings usually.

All network interface configuration in Debian is done in /etc/network/interfaces. If you want more info on that file's layout, man 5 interfaces.

HE-YA!!!
I am "speaking" from linux !!!!!
U don't really know how happy I am

I couldn't make the dhcp-client to work...
Don't know why , but I installed bootp - dhcp client from red hat and it worked right away ....

I hope after a reboot it will work.

Lightbulb It works finally

It didn't work, 'cause pump didn't start on boot

How I managed to make it work (for people that need to know later):
[list=1][*]installed pump[*]made /etc/init.d/pump script file
Code:
          #/bin/sh
          echo Starting pump DHCP client...
          /sbin/pump
          exit 0
[*]ran update-rc.d command to insert pump on the normal runlevels
Code:
          update-rc.d pump start 80 2 3 4 5 .
[/list=1]

and if u wish,
Code:
telinit 4
to switch to runlevel 4(or any other - not 0 or 6 ) and start the rc scripts or, more easily, just reboot

And there u go!!!
